Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release a newly remastered edition of the classic 1975 second album by the legendary Baker Gurvitz Army. Formed by former Gun and Three Man Army members Adrian Gurvitz (guitar, vocals), Paul Gurvitz (bass, vocals) and virtuoso drummer Ginger Baker, the Baker Gurvitz Army recorded three of the finest British rock music of the mid-1970s. The recording of Elysian Encounter saw the band expanded with the addition of vocalist Mr. Snips (Steve Parsons) and keyboard player Peter Lemer. Arguably the Band’s finest work, the album featured such classic material as people , time , the artist and the key.
People / The Key / Time / The Gambler / The Dreamer / Remember / The Artist / The Hustler Bonus Track People (Live) / Freedom (Live)
Having been R&B hit makers for years, the group were no strangers to the American Soul Chart but the pairing of the group with Philadelphia's Gamble & Huff took them to an iconic level of appreciation. The top 20 album spawned the now classic UK #1 When Will I See You Again and the top 20 hit Year Of Decision. Also featured was their Philly debut single Dirty Ol' Man which topped the charts in the Netherlands, staving off the threat of Demis Roussos in the process!
